onvertible is a type that is intended for open sedans. Starting in the 1930s Volvo produced a number of convertible type car chassis. In 1956-57, the famous convertible series (P1900) was produced in a very limited number of around 67 units. Most have been saved to this day.
Many consumers were surprised when the C70 Convertible was presented in 1997, because so far the series is the most exclusive and expensive car with a Volvo badge.
However, the change in C70 is far from beautiful. The first time was an attractive ‘driver’s car’ with the characteristics of roadholding that was almost the same as the C70 Coupé, and with speed and acceleration far beyond the numbers obtained by most of the so-called ‘sports cars’.
Although Volvo is still hesitant to make the car open for security reasons. But, thanks to the Volvo ROPS (Roll Over Protection System) innovation, safety is integrated even if the open car has to be reversed, thanks to the automatic roll-over-bar that is activated in the event of an accident.
The Volvo C70 Convertible was first and foremost intended for the North American market, but the open-air Volvo soon became popular in several other markets with a climate that supports open cars.
C70 Convertible embodies the synthesis of strength, elegance and unique aesthetic proportions. Even at rest, the aggressive lines affect the eyes with a sensation of beauty with speed. By upgrading the Volvo C70 Convertible, it offers a quiet and smooth ride. With the touch of a button, the fabric top is fully automatic and automatically folds smoothly under the back cover. There are no unsightly protrusions or protrusions. Instead, a slim hardcover tonneau clamps securely on top, leaving a smooth, sweeping shape from any angle.
As a provocative and passionate expression of the purity of Scandinavian design, C70 paved the way for the transformation of Volvo design with a vision inspired by aggressive automotive athletics. With C70, the world will never see the same Volvo again. The aesthetic design of the new Volvo has been born. It will be led by the C70 Coupe and Convertible created to enjoy pure driving pleasure. It also sets the standard that Volvo beauty will not be as deep as skin.
For 2004, the Volvo C70 Convertible only saw a small increase. A striking new interior, just named Volcano Red, including thick red leather seats. Linen White, another new interior color, opens a comfortable cockpit with luxurious white leather seating. The sporty aluminum dash inlays accompany the Volcano Red, while the simulation-rich Birchwood inlay coordinates with the White Linen interior.
Powerful and balanced, the Convertible for 2003 received increased horsepower for low-pressure turbo models and high-pressure turbos. Low pressure turbos jumped from 190 horsepower to 197. The high-pressure turbo model increased to 242 horsepower, up from 236 the previous year. The 5-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox offered on the lightweight pressure model, while the Volvo C70 Convertible high-pressure comes standard with a 5-speed manual. Automatically available optionally for high pressure turbo models too. But equipped, the Volvo C70 Convertible offers exceptional agility, superior road grip and highest comfort. If ever there was a car designed to explore the excitement of US snakes 1 from San Francisco to Santa Barbara, or Bath to Bucksport, this is it.
Not only the beauty of the skin is deep, but the safety protection of its inhabitants is in the heart of the Volvo C70 Convertible. Three-point seat belts and head restraints in all seating positions, side impact protection systems (SIPS) with enhanced side impact airbags, and WHIPS whiplash protective seats as standard equipment are only part of the safety story of the Volvo C70 Convertible. The Volvo C70 Convertible even provides rollover protection with a unique ROPS system, an integrated safety system that provides a pretensioning seat belt and a rollover bar that can be installed automatically in the event of a rollover accident. For 2003, the Volvo C70 Convertible comes standard with an ISO-fix baby seat attachment system.
